Coach promises more fire from ChipolopoloBy Diggers Reporter on 18 Jul 2017
Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda says they will not go to sleep in Saturday’s 2018 CHAN 1st round, final leg home game against Swaziland despite enjoying a healthy advantage.
Chipolopolo trounced Swaziland 4-0 in the first round,first leg away qualifier at Lombanda on July 16 to take a comfortable scoreline into the July 22 final leg at home at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
The victory was also Zambia biggest competitive win under Nyirenda since his appointment last September.
“I think we are going to take the game seriously, we will be very cautious, we will respect Swaziland,” Nyirenda said.
A header and a penalty from Lusaka Dynamos midfielder Clatous Chama in the 17th and 47th minutes respectively sparked Zambia’s surge.
Green Buffaloes striker Brian Mwila scored Zambia’s second in the 26th minute to see them go 2-0 into the break before Zesco United defender Fackson Kapumbu put the result beyond doubt with an 81st minute free-kick.
Meanwhile, winner over both legs will play South Africa or Botswana in August’s final leg for a place in next January’s tournament to be hosted by Kenya,.
South Africa are strong favourites to advance and enjoy a 2-0 away win over Botswana from Saturday’s match in Francistown.
The two sides meet in the final leg at Moruleng Stadium on July 22.
